Deep-fried Strawberries at Johnny G's

I was introduced to the deep-fried strawberries ($6.95) at Johnny G's Creole Kitchen while working on a story for Memphis magazine's February Dining Issue about the Tastin' Round Town tour.

The strawberries are dipped in batter and flash-fried and then placed around a ridiculous amount of whipped cream and accented with powdered sugar and chocolate.

The tour's leader Limo Lance described them as "silly good," and while I had my doubts, they are indeed silly good. The warm strawberries are a revelation, and all that other stuff — the beignet-like batter, the whipped cream, etc. — makes this dessert that much sweeter.
